    I have both the Mini 4 and the Pro but I find that I reach for the Mini and hardly ever use the Pro.

    I was debating between getting rid of my air 2 and I got a pro, I then heard the Mini had the best screen...I can't justify having so many iPads.

    If you are not really using it, maybe you should return it. It is a rather expensive item to just leave sitting around.

    From what I've read in terms of screen quality iPad Pro >> iPad Air 2 >> iPad Mini 4

    Think you are doing this because it's more convenient to use the mini due to size

    I normally use my air 2 at home and mini 4 at work or out and about. That said sometimes before bed using the mini is better due to its size. Depends what you are doing

    Perhaps you should use the iPP more. The larger screen may be helpful in doing a search of existing threads on similar topic. Your comments would fit perfectly in this one:

    This display tests came out yesterday, its Mini 4 > Pro > Air 2. On home page of macrumors. But all three were found to be great.

    I'm well aware of that thread, I don't need your condescending attitude.

    The iPP requires more arm movement to initiate actions,though a long cheap stylus remedies that. My mini4 is being used more often as well and you are correct, the size makes it unobtrusive.

    Using the iPP for Kindle is great, you have two good sized pages much like you have with real textbooks. I didn't anticipate that prior to getting it.

    Same thing with my air 2, I ended up not using my pro as much as it. I returned it for full price. If you don't use it, I would advise to return it while you can and get all your money back. I thought about keeping mine, but you can always buy it again in the future for the same price (or cheaper used/refurb). Just my 2 cents.

    If you don't use the pencil or value the larger screen, there is little reason to keep it IMO. Of course getting a pencil is..... Let's just say it's difficult.

    For personal use, it's ~50/50. I'm tending to use the Pro more because I'm using it in place of my laptop at work. I'm sure once I get the Pencil, personal use will skyrocket (taking the place of the Surface Pro 3 - my current drawing tablet).

    do you have Apple keyboard for your ipp? If not i am sure holding it must be very difficult. I mostly use ipp now after Apple keyboard.

    Let's actually be honest. It's not a Pro. There's nothing really "Pro" about it. It should be called the iPad XL.

    The mini is a favorite for many, many people. It's extremely capable.

    It isn't quite immersive enough for me though. I'm loving pro. Should I ever feel the need for a smaller unit to replace it or to work alongside it, I would simply get the current air at that time.

    I found the pro ackward and going for the iPad Air during the first week, now into my second week, I go for the pro and the air feels ackward small.

    Probably sell the air now, week ago was going to be the pro
